Your heart is just like a pump which works all the time to make the blood flow through all blood vessels. Blood pressure measures the force on the wall of the blood vessels caused by the pressure of the blood.
Systolic pressure is the pressure of the blood when your heart beats to pump blood out.
Diastolic pressure is the pressure of the blood when your heart rests in between beats. This reflects how strongly your arteries are resisting blood flow.
